Brief, practical, and wonderfully readable, The Art and Craft of Fiction gives aspiring writers all they need — in under 400 pages. Michael Kardos focuses on technique and presents fiction writing as a teachable (and learnable) art. With an organization built on methods and process rather than traditional literary elements, Kardos helps students begin their stories, write strong scenes, use images and detail, revise for aesthetics and mechanics, and finish and polish their own stories. He delivers clear instruction, effective examples, and assignments that build toward finished work in a tone reviewers praise as “pitch perfect.” A brief fiction anthology at the back of the book — of 15 works that Kardos draws on in his instruction — provides stories that students will love to be inspired by.

Had to buy for class but it is very useful I was required to purchase this book for my short story writing class in college, but I am glad that I have it. I wish I had purchased the paper version and not the ebook, though. It is full of great examples and advice and I recommend it if you are interested in improving your ability to write fiction. This book is about the craft of writing, which is essential and makes the difference between a good idea and a good story.

Get this over the E-book I bought the kindle edition and it was awful because it didn’t have real page numbers so I was forced to get a hard copy for class. Great for class purposes.

Good Resource Good book with a lovely selection of stories. Used it in my Creative Fiction Writing Class and the content is aimed at anyone with a basic knowledge of the language. While the tips felt a bit repetitive, the prompts were a good tie in and it was overall fairly engaging.
